Inservice Development of Reading Teachers.
Reading teachers need to have ample opportunities to experience professional growth. Teachers first need to experience excellent role models in reading instruction. Modeling new curriculum provides teachers opportunities to observe, reflect upon, and ask questions about proposed methods. Literature on new programs should also be passed out to teachers so they can study the principles and philosophy. Study groups and workshops for teachers can also facilitate improved reading instruction. Instruction improves when teachers trust each other and share teaching ideas with each other. Conferences between teachers and supervisors and effective orientation of new teachers also help improve reading instruction techniques. (PM)
